Harlem's Dave East is a rap traditionalist, so it only makes sense that he'd continue the tradition of the freestyle. East has brought his unique energy to many-an-Eastmix, but The Weeknd's "Party Monster" is definitely a bit of a surprise. Though technically an R&B song, East reminds just how heavy that beat (produced by Doc McKinney, Ben Billions and The Weeknd himself) is. East comes with some stylishly aggressive boasts over the instrumental, but there's a tinge of paranoia to his braggadocio -- it's not a surprise that he loops Abel's use of the word in the intro.

In the SoundCloud description, East teases his new project, also titled Paranoia, will arrive soon.

Quotable Lyrics:
I be quiet, my diamonds talkin'
Come say hi to my wrist
I'm private as shit, bi-polar
Won't say hi to a chick
Rollin' sour on private jets
Just for the pilot to hit
